The Damned - New Rose -- 22nd October 1976

The title of the first UK punk single goes to The Damned's first single, New Rose, released on the 22nd of October 1976 by Stiff Records. Several of the band member had the kind of names that would become familiar to us all soon enough, names like Captain Sensible and Rat Scabies.

Finally, things were starting to hot up.

The Damned have an official website here, and there's always the good old Wikipedia page, as well.
